3D popcorn

For a 3D commercial we shot popcorn in ultra slow motion.
We aimed to shoot a single piece of popcorn full frame at the moment it explodes.
Not easy to achieve that goal, but we finally succeded.
It turned out that we need at least 12000 fps to really see the explosion of a single piece of pocorn.

Also the stereo base had to be quite small. It was essential to put the two heavy highspeed cameras on a very stable mirror rig. That way we were able to adjust any interaxial between zero and 60 millimeters.
